Shell Lake is a small community of just over 1,300 people located in rural northwestern Wisconsin. We are about 96 miles north of Minneapolis / St. Paul, 75 miles south of Duluth / Superior, 255 miles from Madison and 400 miles from Chicago.
Shell Lake is unique because entirely within the City's corporate limits is beautiful 2,580 acre Shell Lake. Shell Lake is the State's largest landlocked seepage lake. It is about 36 feet deep at its deepest; it is clear and clean; and it is an excellent place to fish, sail, swim, or just relax.
